Funcom and The Secret World development team has released another new location this week: Kingsmouth Lighthouse. Kingsmouth Lighthouse is towering beacon off the coast of Solomon Island, and this New England-based zone serves as a symbolic hub for the Illuminati faction.
“The towering Kingsmouth lighthouse was built in the late 1700s by the Illuminati, not only to guide ships into safe harbour, but also to make a clear and powerful statement: This was Illuminati territory, their eye was all-seeing, their light shone brighter and stronger than any other. After being forced to flee a Europe increasingly under the iron rule of the Templars, the Illuminati had now claimed North America as their domain.”
According to the TSW site, Kingsmouth Lighthouse is said to hold many secrets of the Illuminati, holding ancient tomes and a scrawling of Egyptian hieroglyphics.
“The lighthouse was automated years ago, and since then it has been mostly deserted and falling into disrepair. Recently, however, it was rented out to the bestselling — and famously eccentric — author Sam Krieg for reasons known only to him. Rumours have it that Krieg is suffering from writer’s block, and sought the silence and solitude of this remote ivory tower in order to finish his long-awaited novel.”
